“Enthralling…an absolute shocker”-The Wall Street Journal
Addictive…Why do Brits make the best detective dramas? ‘Bloodlands’ shows why”- Minneapolis Star Tribune
When an expensive car containing a possible suicide note is pulled from the sea, veteran Northern Ireland police detective Tom Brannick (James Nesbitt, The Missing, Cold Feet, The Hobbit) instantly sees the connection to an infamous cold case that holds enormous personal significance for him. It seems someone is trying to force the police to re-open their investigation into a notorious and long-buried series of mysterious disappearances over 20 years ago during a dark period in Northern Ireland’s history.
This intense Irish crime thriller follows Brannick’s obsessive campaign to identify and unmask the legendary assassin behind these events, a semi-mythical figure nicknamed Goliath: it’s an explosive cat-and-mouse game where the stakes have never been higher. Bloodlands premiered on BBC One prior to its North American launch on Acorn TV. Co-executive produced by Jed Mercurio, creator/EP of Bodyguard and Line of Duty. (1 EP, 2021)
